The deadline is approaching!

Written by

Want to meet the E&M team, have fun and discover your personal Europe? Now you have a chance to do so: in December, we'll be running a workshop in Berlin. But you need to apply in the next few days: the deadline is the 26th of September. For more details or to apply, click here. We're especially still looking for applicants from the UK, Poland and Spain!

The title of the workshop is "Do you speak European?", and we'll be spending a week answering that question. Each day will have a theme, like European literature or European cooking. We hope that by the end of the week, we will have put together a treasury of videos, photos and statements - not to mention recipes! - which will explore different ways of understanding everyday life in our various corners of the continent.

After our last workshop, many of the articles created were published, and some of the participants went on to become writers or even editors at E&M magazine. So apply now, and make E&M your project!

Join E&M in winning a bet for young Europeans!

Written by

How well did they handle the Libya crisis? Who really has power in the EU? Do young Europeans even care about European foreign policy? Answer these questions and join E&M in this amazing opportunity to make your voice heard!

The German Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) is hosting a conference: "Berliner Forum Außenpolitik" on November 29th, to celebrate its 60th anniversary. They have asked E&M and the Körber Foundation to help them involve young Europeans in this celebration.

We have made a bet with a prominent European politician that we can find 10,000 young European to fill in a survey on European Foreign Policy. To win, we need 10,000 people to fill in an online survey, just 17 questions, about European foreign policy, which is now online at E&M at www.europeandme.eu/survey

If we achieve our goal by November 1st, we will have won the bet and the politician must specifically make your views heard through a speech about the results of the survey and meet representatives from Young Europeans across the continent. In other words, this is a great opportunity for you to raise your voice and be heard! By the end of this bet, we will hopefully have shown that young Europeans care about European foreign policy and that we are a force to be reckoned with. With your help, we're sure we can succeed!

Lets WIN THIS BET!

DIAPHRAGM - France, 1895. A cinema is filled with fear, adrenaline, and the pumping of blood as spectators sit down to see their very first moving picture... We discover how European film rose to glory!

BABY - Following on from last issue's focus on Skype sex, we continue looking at sex and the internet with a great article on gay online dating.

LEGS - Want to apply for a Postgraduate degree? Don't even consider it before you read our essential guide to taking on the 'Master's odyssey' including interviews with students from Oxford University, UK & Lund University, Sweden.
